Truman's Multicultural Affairs Center gives students a taste of Black History

      The Multicultural Affairs Center at Truman State University hosts a soul food luncheon for Black History Month.

      In celebration of Black History Month, Truman State University's Multicultural Affairs Center prepared a "finger-licking" treat for students.

      The MAC moved away from their office Sunday afternoon to the Ryle Hall Main Lounge for a soul food luncheon. Sodexo catered a full course meal with delicious drinks. There were also over nine types of deserts prepared by some of Trumanâ??s multicultural students.

      â??So today we had food like mac-n-cheese, black eyed peas, red beans and rice and of course, chicken,â?? says luncheon coordinator Emmanuel Camarillo.

      The MAC has also planned a few more events for Black History Month. The next is a documentary showing inside of the Student Union Alumni room on February 19th at 7 p.m.

      There will also be a live webcast in VH 1236 on February 20th at 5 p.m. Sights and Sounds of Africa will be held in the Student Union Georgian rooms on February 23rd at 5 p.m.
